Bang Bang Shrimp Copycat

Saturday night date night at home!

Bonefish Grill's Bang Bang Shrimp made at home and a gourmet burger.

recipe adapted from Gina's Skinny Recipes

4 tablespoons light mayonnaise
3 tablespoons Thai sweet chili sauce
1 teaspoon Sriracha sauce
1/2 cup shredded iceberg lettuce
1/2 pound large shrimp, shelled and deveined
2 teaspoons cornstarch

In a medium bowl, combine mayonnaise, sweet chili sauce and Sriracha. Set aside.

Divide lettuce between 2 plates. Set aside.

Coat shrimp with cornstarch, mixing well with your hands.

Heat a large skillet on high heat; when hot add oil. When oil is hot add the shrimp to hot pan and cook, tossing constantly for about 3 to 4 minutes, or until shrimp are slightly crispy. Remove from pan and combine with the sauce, coating well.

Place shrimp mixture on lettuce and top with scallions.

Yield: 2 appetizer servings

Hamburger included plain beef patty, crumbled blue cheese, chunky blue cheese salad dressing, bacon, lettuce and tomato. We had sweet potato fries with the burger (frozen crinkle cut from Kroger).
